The city of Peoria’s March 31 budget meeting laid out the financial plan for the year with a budget of $695 million.
Mayor Cathy Carlat kicked off the meeting by thanking the room for their hard work on the budget, despite the many challenges the pandemic has caused.
“Last year about this time, the COVID-19 pandemic shook our world,” she said. “In spite of all, the pandemic dulled out. As we approach a new budget year, I am proud to report that we do so as a fiscally sound city.”
